We don’t know what floor Luca lives on but we know he’s in The Famous Barrel in Penryn, Cornwall, and the weary expression is because he’s been there quite some time! Thanks to Katherine for the photo!
One of the best, most welcoming, sights in a public house is the presence of a pub dog.
Lazing by an open fire. At the feet of their master. Bowl of water. Maybe a sneaky beer taster. Fresh from a walk. Snaffling round for rogue nuts and scratchings. Sniffing out recent canine visitors. Fussed over by other drinkers. Can I say hello to your dog? What his name? It is a he isn’t it?
They’re an essential part of what makes British pubs so great.
